The display of Apple’s iPad 5 is reported to be in production and it is learned the suppliers are working on a thinner touch screen to make the device lighter and thinner, equipped with design of iPad Mini to some extent.
Earlier leaks about the so-called iPad 5 reveals the tablet to have a new look, inspired by the design of iPad Mini and possibly with a new screen technology on it’s release date.
The Wall Street Journal writes, “The same touch-panel technology that made the iPad mini thin and light will likely feature in the next iPad, which is currently being produced by Apple Inc.’s Asian suppliers.”
WSJ also claims Apple may be releasing the iPad 5 this fall. GottaBeMobile.com writes the new Apple products to be launching in coming months are iPhone 5S, iPad 5, iPad Mini 2, iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks. Now, if it is believed the display of the new tablet is in production, then could it arrive sooner and not later. It also points for a separate launching event for the iPad 5 and not clubbed with the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
Now that iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C has been announced and it is expected to be released by 18th September. If this is so, the iOS 7 may be released within a week or so after the event. This will open the doors for the iPad 5 and also for the upcoming iPad Mini 2.
Both the devices are expected to be run by the latest operating system. The last iPad was launched in October 2012, just ahead of the busy holiday season and Apple was able to sell large number of the tablets. This time too the same is expected from the iDevice giant. So watch out for a possible next month iPad 5 release date.
